I don't know if I'm able to help you, it depends on the amount of
massage to do on Bison.  Are you using CVS Bison as basis?

Bison 1.35 is by no means the right target.  The right target is CVS
Bison.  There is a copy of it at:

That's really the one you ought to target.

This is great.  It should be easier with 1.49b.  But the most
important is that I must know who wrote what you want to include.
Each person much sign and send via post mail the following disclaimer,
and have your employer (I guess the university) sign the other
disclaimer.  Without this, the code cannot be integrated into Bison.
Please, fill in this papers, print them and send them to the FSF, but
also send the files to

There are several papers out there that describe the algorithms used
in Bison.  On my TODO is to list these in the documentation.  Maybe
you can help?
